Commercial Playground Cableways and Ziplines

All across schools and parks, one look at all the children lined up for playground ziplines and cableways, and you can understand why. Playground ziplines are one of the most famous pieces of playground equipment!  

And just waiting for the ride is a development factor in children. As they anticipate the thrill ride, they communicate, improve social skills, learn to be considerate, and take turns.  After the exhilarating ride to the end, there is a moment of social responsibility, checking if anyone is waiting, then returning the seat to them. 

KOMPAN's double zipline turns the social fun up a notch. Children, and the occasional adult, have the opportunity to be social and have fun together as they share the excitement of the zipline ride. The double zipline playground equipment also incorporates an element of friendly competition. Children can learn the essential life skills of winning, losing and good sportsmanship.

    Why is Zipline Playground Equipment so much fun? 

    Commercial ziplines are a great addition to any playground, and children will love the whole experience - as with any freestanding unit, zipline playground equipment can complete your play area. A ride on a playground zipline takes the standard swing experience to the next level. Anticipating the ride from the freestanding zipline platform, getting handed over the seat and experiencing the thrilling stomach-tickling feeling as you leave the platform and go free flying down the zipline: What a fantastic feeling!  

    A sense of achievement enhances the entire experience as this playful leap of faith for many children is a first experience in overcoming an obstacle, thus boosting self-confidence. That's why children will go back to a zipline ride repeatedly. 

    The Benefits of Playground Ziplines 

    The reason for this immense magnetic pull of the playground zipline lies mainly in the exhilarating thrill of gliding through the air. The speed, the feeling of weightlessness and floating through the air, is imperative in training spatial awareness and the child's understanding of gravity, space, and speed. This is necessary, e.g. in managing traffic safely. The social skills get trained as children diligently hand back the seat to the following user in line—the running and pulling train the child's cardio and upper body muscles.
